Co-founding & Startup Incubation
The context of a business model is the most effective way to build economically sustainable engines that create and deliver new value to people.
These businesses are called Startups. Startups are defined as, “temporary organizations designed to discover a scalable and repeatable business model” (~Steve Blank). To be successful in a Startup, a diverse set of disciplines must be masterfully executed including: software engineering, art & design, product management, marketing, finance, and strategic planning.
With over a decade of experience building internet based products and businesses, we’ve found ourselves in a position to be helpful to internet startups from a co-founding and incubation standpoint.
FullStack is the killer technical co-founder. Bringing a well oiled, world class design & development team to the table can supercharge your startup from day one. We’ve helped startups build their platforms from idea to profit and beyond. Dave McClure of 500 Startups says that any startup needs a hacker, a hustler, and a designer. FullStack is ideally positioned to fill the hacker and designer roles in this triumvirate. You bring the hustle!
CTO or Interim CTO
We’ve filled the role of CTO for several startups in recent years. Leveraging FullStack and / or Josh Cramer as your CTO / Interim CTO can often be an effective way to fill this need without compromising the quality of technical expertise in your early stage startup.
Business Model Iteration
Starting with our Ideation Consulting, we help startups continue to iterate on their business models and to develop additional strategies that help them grow. Our business model design efforts include a variety of elements including Go-To-Market plan creation, user testing strategy, user experience design, product development roadmap creation, analytics and KPI definition, defining a minimum viable product, market research, and more.
Getting an outside perspective on your technology stack and architecture can be extraordinarily helpful. Our development team has worked on and seen a variety of apps in all stages of development. We will assess the status of your systems from perspectives of security, application architecture, data architecture, dev ops, and provide follow on recommendations in each area.
Technology Risk Assessment
De-risking your technology stack is an inevitable pursuit when your startup begins to scale. We’ve helped startups transition from a prototype or version 1 application to a stable and scalable environment that contains a degree of redundancy and scalability. We offer consulting and engineering services in this space to help you identify risks, mitigate them, and address them with contingency plans.
